The plane boasts a cutting-edge carbon-composite body, which makes the plane dramatically lighter than its aluminum frame counterparts. The decrease in weight allows for wider, more comfortable seating, more in-flight entertainment hardware and state of the art avionic equipment. Other luxuries include wider, self-dimming cabin windows, an advanced cabin pressure system for passenger comfort, and sound-absorbing insulation. The 787's 330 passenger capacity and 8,500 nautical mile range add competition to the Airbus' behemoth A380 luxury liner. (Courtesy The Boeing Company)
